  1. Farewell

    And so that is it from me until the weekend. But what a fantastic stage we have in prospect tomorrow - 179.5km from Briancon to Izoard and surely the last serious chance for someone, anyone, to really try to take some time out of Chris Froome.

    With a time trial in Marseille on Saturday, they will need to.


  2. Chapeau Roglic

    And so a brilliant stage in the Alps saw a superb win for former world junior ski jumping champion Primoz Roglic and Chris Froome extend his lead at the top of the standings to 27 precious seconds.

    That lead will doubtless be tested to the full tomorrow on the slope up to the summit finish at Izoard.

    Sadly, there will be no Marcel Kittel when we start tomorrow. Nor Dan McLay. Nor Thibaut Pinot. They all abandoned.

  3. Dan Martin on his Galibier attacks

    "I just thought I'd test it out and make it uncomfortable for Sky. The tempo wasn't so hard so I thought I'd try them out. I'm not sure how Chris Froome is feeling, he's got a good poker face".

    "I think I've jumped one place on the general classification and it's just good to feel good again".

    Stage winner Primoz Roglic

    "Crazy, huh? Incredible. This stage of the Galibier? No words".

    "Right now I can still not really ponder all these feelings, later I will know how big it is".

    "I somehow decide to go for it finally today, also my girlfriend and family were here today".

  10. Post update

    Did I mention that Primoz Roglic used to be a ski jumper?

  11. 'He landed on his feet'

    Simon Brotherton

    Radio 5 live at the Tour de France

    Former ski-jumper Primoz Roglic really landed on his feet today!

  12. Post update

    We are hearing that provisionally Chris Froome leads by 27 seconds from both Rigoberto Uran and Romain Bardet.

    "It is tight at the top," deadpans Rob Hayles. Quite so.

  13. Post update

    Simon Yates comes in more than three minutes behind the winner. And boy, was there a look of total pain on his face.

    Tough day for the man who had been in the white jersey as the best young rider in the race.

  14. Froome stays in yellow

    Rob Hayles

    Former GB cyclist at the Tour de France

    A great win by Roglic, we know the former ski jumper can descend well.

    And what a mauling in that second group - they were all fighting for everything they could - they were really, really hurting

    Primoz Roglic
  15. Post update

    So it finishes Uran second, Froome third and Bardet fourth.

    The group with Dan Martin and Fabio Aru comes in a little while later.

    Uran second, Froome third and Bardet fourth
  16. Post update

    A sprint finish from the GC contenders. I mean, really, what powers them on.

  17. Post update

    And here come Froome and co.

  18. Roglic takes the stage

    LottNL-Jumbo's Primoz Roglic crosses the line to win a stage of the Tour de France for the first time.

    Congratulations to the 27-year-old.

  19. 1km to go

    Yep, Roglic, no doubt.
